How necessary is EGR delete with tune if deltas are OK?
'06 crew cab long bed 6-speed. All stock. 70K miles. Runs perfect.
I am in the process of ordering a Livewire TS from vivian to tune and monitor the truck. Fresh oil change, just ordered the blue spring and some rev-x.
My plan: Install the livewire (no tune) and run it for a bit to make sure everything looks ok with EOT and ECT, and FCIM voltages. IF EVERYTHING LOOKS OK i was planning on loading a quiciktricks tune. (street or looney, doubt clutch can handle looney tune).
My question: Provided that the ECT EOT temps check out ok, would it still be necessary to do the EGR delete now, or wait until it needs an oil cooler replaced? I was thinking to just change out all the coolant, flush it with DI H20 a couple times, then replace coolant and add a coolant filter. Then just keep an eye on my deltas.
All opinions are appreciated.
